Johann Nepomuk Hummel and the End of a Golden Age.

Although Hummel died a famous conductor, pianist and composer, his music was quickly forgotten as musical fashions changed. It was really only with the modern revival due to interest in the music of the eighteenth century that scholars, performers and recording companies began to explore the works by Hummel and other contemporaries of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, the giants of the Golden Age of Music.

Conductor and flautist Uwe Grodd has been at the forefront of this revival since gaining international recognition in 2000 as winner of the First Prize at the Cannes Classical Awards 2000 for the Best Eighteenth Century Orchestral Recording with his CD of symphonies by Johann Baptist Vanhal conducting the Esterházy Sinfonia, Hungary. Among his most important publications have been recordings of works by Mozart's pupil Johann Nepomuk Hummel in whose music the influence of Mozart is clearly to be heard.
